Stavia, love you! You are awesome!
GenePoole0304, I appreciate your response and I agree, my parents could certainly be better and that's why I do the things I do. I don't want to end up sedentary, eating crap and taking meds, but I am glad that they are still alive and somewhat well and cognitively still there. I enjoy them! I want to be healthy and strong. I don't see my exercise as a chore. For years, I ran 3 miles a day or did the elliptical machine, but it bothers my hips now, so I do other things, lifting weights, rowing, the Five Tibetans, yoga, etc., also enjoy gardening, not the weeds so much. We have a wind trainer on the bike and I try to do HIIT and for an older women, not too bad! Can hike on our land with the dog, love to cook like you as well and I once recommended that we have a board on this site for recipes and ideas. No, not being compulsive or obsessive in any way, just wondering why some folks are spared and some are not. Normal questions I'm sure. Some who take good care of themselves, and are social beings, spiritual, etc. like the Blue Zones people, and end up with AD while others eat crap, don't exercise, etc. are not affected. I hope one day these questions will be answered.
That is one of my favorite songs. Thank you for the video! You have no idea how much it means to me! Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing will be alright! Great motto!
Lucy5, thank you so much. Sometimes I just wonder and it makes me feel good to hear that others are sometimes feeling the same thing. Thank you so much for letting me rant.
By the way, I watched Dr. Bredesen today and he was really the only one who spoke that garnered my attention and respect. Granted some I missed, but his was commanding. He didn't try to sell something or push supplements. We are all familiar with his approach, so not a lot of new info for us, but he just was......different.....informative.......a researcher.....dedicated...intelligent. I enjoy listening to him. Perhaps he gives us hope!
